hemlock - "garbage truck"

hemlock is the musical project of Louisiana raised and Chicago based musician Carolina Chauffe. Their Bandcamp page describes their music as "lofi phone-folk," and I truly can't argue with that. "garbage truck" is probably best described as bedroom folk/pop. It's an absolutely gorgeous song led by Chauffe's dream-like vocals. It starts off as a fairly standard lo-fi folk song, but all these swirls keep coming and going as they see fit, which truly brings a unique and lush element to the song. A lot of artists can be compelling despite being so quiet, but hemlock inspire excitement without a lot of noise. That is much more rare, and truly special. 

You can listen to "garbage truck" below. talk soon is due out March 11, and you can pre-order the album over at Bandcamp. For more on hemlock, check out the artist's website.
